On Interstate 10 near the west Texas town of Sierra Blanca, the border patrol has set up a quasi-legal checkpoint with drug-sniffing dogs that has been a boon to the local economy. Lawyers in the area specialize in defending drug arrests.

Among the celebrities to have been arrested in Sierra Blanca for marijuana possession include Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Fiona Apple, and the first guy to hack the iPhone and the PS3, "geohot" (aka George Hotz).
